I really admire all you guys who can operate multiple Top Tier DAW's. You must know so much about the ins and outs of each one of them and how they work that you can only conclude that the solutions to your DAW dilemmas (and the music you can't make inside just one of them) must lie in carefully weaving several of them together just to get that last 1 percent of wow factor. Every now and then I get to wonder if there is something wrong with me, in that I can actually start and finish something in Live.
Yeah its easy to start a track and not finish it.I tend to have frequent breaks ( due to shift work),and focus on a bit of the track at the time,rather than rushing and not finishing,ha,ha
With me,I come from a completely non- musical background.I have listened and learned,from people here on the forums,elsewhere, and picked stuff as I gone along.
I use the superb Macpro video tutorials too for valuable learning too
Started with Reason 4 years ago,and gained a lot of confidence and knowledge,and still learning,( as I expect we all are)
I started with Live in 2011,(due to its great features and ease of use) and discovered the joys of using Rewire,together with Live,( now I got a template made up,its even easier ,he,he)
Using both together gives me a huge choice and a lot of scope for my ambient music
And this year with even more new stuff to learn,its going to be an exciting year for me and producing new ambient music
